Key landmarks

1

House-museum of D. Yavornytskyi

The house with a mezzanine was built in 1905 according to the project of Leonid Brodnytskyi. The customer was the Ukrainian historian Dmytro Yavornytskyi. He lived on this estate until he died in 1940. Now it houses the memorial house-museum of D. Yavornytskyi.

2

Pedestrian street D. Yavornytskyi

The pedestrian street leads from the Transfiguration Cathedral to the central entrance to the park named after T. Shevchenko. In 2020, it was completely reconstructed and opened for walks. Several architectural monuments are located on the street, in particular the Constructivist House of Politicians.

3

Khrinnikov's house

A vivid example of Ukrainian architectural modernism. Built to the order of the Ukrainian entrepreneur and philanthropist Volodymyr Khrinnikov. Until 1917, public life was there. In the 1930s years, it was known as the Doctor's House. During the post-war reconstruction, it received a modern, simplified appearance. Since the 1950s, it has been known to Dnipro residents as the "Ukraine" hotel.

4

Monument to Taras Shevchenko

In the early 1990s, local sculptor Volodymyr Nebozhenko made a model of the Shevchenko monument. The self-portrait of 1840 was taken as a basis. According to the author's idea, Shevchenko should have been holding a brush and a palette, but the authorities did not like this option, so the monument received a scroll in his left hand, a certificate of release from serfdom.
